I received this book for Christmas and was surprised to find that the embossing on the cover protruded a half a centimeter, which is way too thick to fit very well on a bookshelf. But that’s neither here nor there in the long run. The story itself has a pretty standard set-up: Luke gets his hands on a supposedly dangerous comic-book that turns out to actually be dangerous. He gets sucked into its horrific world and his friends go in after him. Luckily, there are plenty of twists to keep things interesting, such as the motives behind the existence of Malice, Kady’s past, and Justin’s secrets. The art, unfortunately, is pretty poor, to the point where I was having trouble distinguishing between the characters. I was a little disappointed in the ending as well, which is more or less a cliffhanger to be (presumably) resolved in the next book. I understand the purpose behind that tactic, but I was a little disappointed nonetheless. I think, had the story wrapped up in a single volume (or I had the second volume at hand), I would have felt differently. I could see someone in their early teens really enjoying this.

Bringing this to the BC in DC meet at Union Station, Washington, DC, tomorrow. I hope it finds a new reader.
